West Coast Labs is an independent organisation set up to test information technology security products and services.
West Coast Labs has developed the Checkmark certification system, which is regarded as one of the world’s foremost computer security certification programmes. The Lab also conducts Custom Tests and work for the UK Government as part of the CCT Mark scheme.
Checkmark is one of the leading brands in the US and the standard in Europe and the Asia Pacific, and its certifications have developed into a system recognised around the world as a reliable indicator of performance levels.
Such is the renown of West Coast Labs, and the level of trust in the Checkmark Certification, that many well-known multinational security organisations – including Trend, Symantec, McAfee and Microsoft – are clients.
West Coast Labs expertise extends beyond the certification of information security products and services into the field of product testing.
